New Parrot Toys Every Month

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

Dear Parrot Lover,

By now you know the importance of toys for your parrot…or at least you should! Since most parrots have the mental capacity of an inquisitive toddler, it is very important to their overall wellbeing to have adequate toys to play with. Not only do such toys provide your parrot with mental stimulation, but they can even help you to teach your parrot skills such as foraging.

But it can be quite difficult when it comes to choosing the right type of toy for your parrot. Just as there are many different varieties of pet birds and parrots, there are also just as many varieties of toys for parrots.

Keep in mind that parrots need a minimum of five toys in their cage, and each toy should be of a different texture, color and used for a different type of playing and learning. When choosing a toy for your parrot, you can’t go wrong with choosing a foraging toy. Wild parrots have to forage for their food and such a foraging toy in your parrot’s cage can help them keep their mind stimulated and their beaks busy. You can place your parrot’s favorite treats inside a foraging toy and allow him or her to have fun trying to figure out how to get to their treats.

Another favorite toy to get, especially if you have a very smart parrot, is a puzzle toy. Such a toy can keep your parrot occupied happily for hours on end! Smart parrots love a challenge and puzzle toys are just perfect.

If you have a parrot that loves to chew things up and destroy everything you put on, in or near their cage, then the best type of toy to get them is one that is made hardily and that will stand up to even the strongest beak.

Toys for parrots provide a better alternative than to have your parrot chew up your furniture or curtains. Parrot toys also give your parrot safe items to investigate instead of exploring dangerous household items, such as cleaners. Remember to always praise your parrot whenever you see him or her playing with their toys, as this will reiterate to them that playing with their toys is a good thing.

However, you must take care when choosing toys for your parrot. Some parrot toy manufacturers are unscrupulous and create toys that can be downright harmful to your parrot. There are some toys that are available to purchase right now on the shelf at your local pet store that contains Zinc, Lead and made with harmful, toxic wood. You’ll have to be very careful in your parrot toy selection to insure the health and safety of your parrot.

Turn Your Parrot into More than a Cage Accessory

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

Dear Parrot Lover,

Parrots can be pleasant, clown-like creatures that bring their owners much happiness and pleasure. But only if they are trained properly from the get-go! It is extremely important that you command train your parrot to respond to your verbal instructions, as this not only helps in establishing yourself as the flock leader, but it also works to ensure that your parrot will be able to be handled safely in case of an emergency. Not every parrot owner knows that are four simple commands to train your parrot to respond and obey to: “Step Up”, “Step Down”, “No”, “OK”

The “Step Up” command is probably the most important command you will ever teach your parrot. This command is used whenever you would like your parrot to step up onto your finger or perch. Train your parrot to respond to this command by tenderly pressing your index finger against his or her chest. This will gently cause your parrot to want to take a step forward and they will then step up onto your finger.

When you want your parrot to step down off of your finger, you should teach them to respond to the “Step Down” command. This can be easily taught by holding your parrot behind a perch that you wish him or her to step down onto and gently tilt your hand down towards the perch whilst commanding “Step Down”. Naturally, your parrot will take a step down off of your index finger and down onto their perch.

The next best command to train your parrot to acknowledge is the “No” command. This is taught whenever your parrot does something you don’t want him or her to do. Saying “No” is much better than saying “stop it” or “bad bird”, as these words sound humorous to your parrot and they will have little understanding of the seriousness behind these words.

The “OK” command is said to your parrot whenever he or she makes up their own mind to do something that you haven’t yet given them permission to do. Repeating this command will help you stay at the top of your parrot’s household pecking order, whilst simultaneously reiterating to your parrot to obey you.

These four commands can be quite easily taught to your parrot and can be a true lifesaver in the case of emergency. Your parrot will know that he or she needs to “Step Up” or “Step Down” whenever they need to be moved quickly from their cage into their carrier for a quick trip to the vet.

In addition training your parrot to respond to these commands will cement a lifelong trusting relationship between the two of you.
